Artists >> Spafford Ellie

A love of Landscape is central to my work. I am always drawn to the sea, lakes and rivers. Echoes, distortions and reflections create fascinating effects to work with. I enjoy experimenting with different mediums and processes. I paint with my hands, cloths, sponges and brushes. I revel in the investigative process, finding new textures and working over traditional oils with ink, varnish and gesso.

This series I'm working on, is exclusively based on London. I'm inspired by all the textures and eccentric architecture. Smog, fog and rain add a haunting veil over the landscape.
